Ivy Bridge - £750 budget

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Approximate Purchase Date: (The next few months

Budget Range: £750

System Usage from Most to Least: Gaming (Crysis 2, BF3, EVE Online, SWtOR and other Big games), Video Rendering and Editing, College Work

Parts Not Required: Keyboard, Mouse, Storage Drive, OS, Monitor (Although if the budget allows a new one would be nice if not I will get a new one after the computer)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Aria.co.uk and novatech.co.uk although if better prices are found I am willing to use a different site as long as it is trusted

Country: United Kingdom, England

Parts Preferences: Intel Ivy Bridge, Z77 Motherboard

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire: Yes in the future

Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080

Additional Comments: just wanted some advice on my new Ivy Bridge build, here is a wishlist with the parts I have chosen any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated, I would like to SLI or crossfire in the future and I definitely want to overclock as much as I can. My budget is £750 although I am willing to stretch it a little bit. With these parts I have left about £160 for the processor so I would also like to know which processor is worth getting.
Here is the link to the wishist - https://www.aria.co.uk/WishList/nWQ7BeutloaVQmYDwra67g,,

I already have a 500gb WD Caviar Blue and I already have windows 7

I have asked in the new build section of the forum and someone told me to ask here for some reason haha

Thanks in advance

Alright buddy,

For that budget I would suggest you go for Sandy bridge instead. Pick up a nice i5-2500k and more than 4gb of ram. It is true that 4GB should be enough but 8gb usually only costs a little more and especially for video rendering and editing and heavier games might come in useful.

cant really say much now as we dont know the prices of the Ivy Bridge CPUs, motherboards dont seemed to be priced so bad though.
